The block of the month for October 1 for the forum on the Quilting Board is an old fashioned block, the Drunkard’s Path.  The pattern was taken from McCall’s Quilting and is a little trickier because of the curved seams.  I don’t have a lot of problems with curved seams, probably because I’ve been sewing dresses for myself and my family for 55 years.  The curved seams on this block are like easing tiny sleeves into doll dresses. 

The segments of the Drunkard’s Path block can be arranged in many different ways – this particular one is called “Wedding Ring Variation“.
